From Star staff reports

WINCHESTER — Shenandoah University head field hockey coach Ashley Smeltzer announced Wednesday that she has added Alyssa David to her coaching staff for the 2013 season.

David comes to Shenandoah after a four-year career for longtime Division III power William Smith College in Geneva, N.Y.

David, who was a four-year starter on defense for the Hurons, begins her first collegiate coaching assignment after completing a playing career that saw her play in two NCAA Tournaments and win one Liberty League title.

In addition to her William Smith playing career, David spent a semester studying at Trinity St. David University in Wales in the spring of 2012 and helped that squad to its first-ever victory over its rival university.
